A Progressive History

Hayes Brake has been leading the pack in brake technology since 1946. That same commitment to breakthrough design and performance was extended to the mountain bike market in 1997 when Hayes Disc Brake was formed. Our brake systems have been stopping wheels longer than most bikers have been riding – or breathing, for that matter. Twenty years ago, Hayes changed the face of mountain biking forever with the release of the HFX-Mag. The Mag was a brake system that was durable, reliable, and didn’t need a guy in a lab coat to explain how to set it up. The design set the standard for most offerings available today. Hayes has continuously refined our products based on the ever-changing demands of riders, without creating a headache for the backyard bike mechanics.

Why Hayes Disc Brakes? Brakes are the lifeblood of our business. Our sole focus is to develop products that outperform and exceed expectations. Hayes has been around for decades, surpassing industry standards and setting the curve in performance. It’s no wonder that industry-leading companies like Arctic Cat, John Deere, Kubota, Polaris, and Oshkosh Corp. turn to us for their disc brakes.

Built into each Hayes disc brake is power, feel, and dependability; you need to get the most out of every ride. People who listen to other riders, and ride themselves, are the same people who design our brakes. We continually enhance, redesign or introduce products with stopping power and safety features that you won’t find in other brake systems.
